ACDIS update: Does your new staff orientation process include mentorship?
Starting a new profession is always difficult and becoming a CDI specialist is no different. While more jobs include new hire training programs—likely including some sort of lesson plan, and perhaps a designated educator—one of the most successful education tools is mentorship.
A mentor allows for that one-on-one teaching and learning that is so beneficial for understanding a new line of work. It allows new employees to make connections with their colleagues and receive the specific education they need, as well as offering them a designated person to ask questions and seek advice.
Whether or not your CDI program has a mentoring program, ACDIS wants to know! Please take a moment to respond to our latest polling question and let us know about your mentoring program (or lack thereof).
